If the Participant’s Termination of Service is due to death, the Period of Restriction shall lapse, effective as of the date of death.

Unless otherwise determined by the Committee in its sole discretion, in the event of the Participant’s Termination of Service for any other reason, the Shares of Restricted Stock shall be forfeited effective as of the date of the Participant’s Termination of Service.
5.Dividends on Restricted Stock
During the Period of Restriction, the Participant shall be entitled to receive any cash dividends paid with respect to the Shares of Restricted Stock regardless of whether the Period of Restriction has not lapsed. All stock dividends paid with respect to Shares of Restricted Stock shall be (a) added to the Restricted Stock, and (b) subject to all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the Plan.
During the Period of Restriction, the Participant may exercise all voting rights with respect to the Shares of Restricted Stock as if he or she is the owner thereof.
The Participant represents to the Company that:
The terms and arrangements relating to the grant of Restricted Stock and the offer thereof have been arrived at or made through direct communication with the Company or person acting in its behalf and the Participant;
The Participant has received a balance sheet and income statement of the Company and as an officer or key employee of the Company:
is thoroughly familiar with the Company’s business affairs and financial condition and
has been provided with or has access to such information (and has such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters that the Participant is capable of utilizing such information) as is necessary to evaluate the risks, and make an informed investment decision with respect to, the grant of Restricted Stock; and
The Restricted Stock is being acquired in good faith for investment purposes and not with a view to, or for sale in connection with, any distribution thereof.
8.Income and Employment Tax Withholding
All required federal, state, city and local income and employment taxes which arise on the lapse of the Period of Restriction shall be satisfied through the (a) withholding of Shares required to be issued under Section 10, or (b) tendering by the Participant to the Company of Shares which are owned by the Participant, as described in Section 15.02 of the Plan. The Fair Market Value of the Shares to be tendered shall be equal to the dollar amount of the Company’s aggregate withholding tax obligations, calculated on the day the Period of Restriction ends.
Until the end of the Period of Restriction, the Restricted Stock cannot be (i) sold, transferred, assigned, margined, encumbered, bequeathed, gifted, alienated, hypothecated, pledged or otherwise disposed of, whether by operation of law, whether voluntarily or involuntarily or otherwise, other than by will or by the laws of descent and distribution, or (ii) subject to execution, attachment, or similar process. Any attempted or purported transfer of Restricted Stock in contravention of this Section 9 or the Plan shall be null and void ab initio and of no force or effect whatsoever.
10.Issuance of Shares
At or within a reasonable period of time (and not more than 30 days) following execution of this Agreement, the Company will issue, in book entry form, the Shares representing the Restricted Stock. As soon as administratively practicable following the date on which the Period of Restriction lapses, the Company will issue to the Participant or his or her Beneficiary the number of Shares of Restricted Stock specified in Section 1. In the event of the Participant’s death before the Shares are issued, such shares will be issued to the Participant’s Beneficiary or estate. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 10, the Company will not be required to issue or deliver any Shares prior to (i) completing any registration or other qualification of the Shares, which the Company deems necessary or advisable under any federal or state law or under the rulings or regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission or any other governmental regulatory body; and (ii) obtaining any approval or other clearance from any federal or state governmental agency or body, which the Company determines to be necessary or advisable. The Company has no obligation to obtain the fulfillment of the conditions specified in the preceding sentence. As a further condition to the issuance of the Shares, the Company may require the making of any representation or warranty which the Company deems necessary or advisable under any applicable law or regulation. Under no circumstances shall the Company delay the issuance of shares pursuant to this Section to a date that is later than 2-1/2 months after the end of the calendar year in which the Period of Restriction lapses, unless issuance of the shares would violate federal securities law or other applicable law, in which case the Company shall issue such shares as soon as administratively feasible (and not more than 30 days) after such issuance would no longer violate such laws.
11.Mitigation of Excise Tax
Except to the extent otherwise provided in a written agreement between the Company and the Participant, the Restricted Stock issued hereunder is subject to reduction by the Committee for the reasons specified in Section 13.01 of the Plan.
The Participant agrees that, if he or she is a member of the Company’s Executive Leadership Group at the time a Period of Restriction lapses, and if at the time the Period of Restriction lapses, he or she has not satisfied the Company’s Stock Ownership guidelines, the Participant will continue to hold the Shares received (net of taxes) following the lapse until such time as the Participant has satisfied the Company’s Stock Ownership requirement.
The Participant hereby agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Company and its Affiliates (and their respective directors, officers and employees), and the Committee, from and against any and all losses, claims, damages, liabilities and expenses based upon or arising out of the incorrectness or alleged incorrectness of any representation made by Participant to the Company or any failure on the part of the Participant to perform any agreements contained herein. The Participant hereby further agrees to release and hold harmless the Company and its Affiliates (and their respective directors, officers and employees) from and against any tax liability, including without limitation, interest and penalties, incurred by the Participant in connection with his or her participation in the Plan.
The Company hereby undertakes to deliver to the Participant, at such time as they become available and so long as the Period of Restriction has not lapsed and the Restricted Stock has not been forfeited, a balance sheet and income statement of the Company with respect to any fiscal year of the Company ending on or after the date of this Agreement.
15.Changes in Shares
In the event of any change in the Shares, as described in Section 4.04 of the Plan, the Committee will make appropriate adjustment or substitution in the Shares of Restricted Stock, all as provided in the Plan. The Committee’s determination in this respect will be final and binding upon all parties.
16.Effect of Headings and Defined Terms
The descriptive headings of the Sections and, where applicable, subsections, of this Agreement are inserted for convenience and identification only and do not constitute a part of this Agreement for purposes of interpretation. Unless otherwise stated, terms used in this Agreement will have the same meaning as specified in the Employment Agreement or Severance and Change in Control Agreement entered into with the Participant.
Except to the extent superseded by the laws of the United States, the laws of the State of Indiana, without reference to the choice of law principles thereof, shall be controlling in all matters relating to this Agreement.
This Agreement may be executed in two (2) or more counterparts, each of which will be deemed an original, but all of which collectively will constitute one and the same instrument.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the Company, by its officer thereunder duly authorized, and the Participant, have caused this Restricted Stock Award Agreement to be executed as of the day and year first above written.
